Award winning dutch designer Borre Akkersdijk of the brand named after him, byborre opened his doors and archives to us to show us some of the Highlights that he has created over the years.
Byborre is an Amsterdam based textile innovation studio working on the frontiers of material development, functionality and aesthetics through engineered knits.
Signature to Byborre are the innovative hand-rendered techniques that, through direct interaction with their circular knitting machines, give the studio full creative freedom to play with patterns, colours, and textures within their fabrics. Designing from the yarn up allows Byborre to discover new possibilities both within their own collections and for leading brands.
Over the past six years Byborre has worked with clients such as Nike, Louis Vuitton, The North Face, and Moncler. Through consultation and collaboration with other brands, Byborre pushes knit innovation to find creative ways to achieve the project’s goal. The archetypical clothing pieces in the studio’s own label tell an important story about the relationship between material and machine, along with introducing a new approach to fashion where process and product are equally important.
Byborre’s Amsterdam based HQ studio houses a knitting and innovation Lab, a fully outfitted atelier, a team of specialists and experts, a Byborre archive, and endless amounts of crazy fabrics.
